partlycloudyWhen planning an event or a trip, I often check the local weather forecast. The terms “Partly Cloudy” and “Partly Sunny” have always been rather confusing to me. I went to the National Weather Service hoping for some clarification.

On their site, I found the following definitions: Partly Cloudy, “Between 3/8 and 5/8 of the sky is covered by clouds.” Partly Sunny: “Between 3/8 and 5/8 of the sky is covered by clouds. ” The term “Partly Sunny” is used only during daylight hours.

While I did not learn much from their definitions, partly sunny always sounds better to me than partly cloudy. Maybe I am more optimistic when I hear sunny rather than cloudy. It must be all attitude. Is your glass half full or half empty?
